Treatment Approach

My goal in working with minors is to help empower them to make better decisions for their In working with minors, I encourage parents and guardians to be active in the treatment process. My treatment style often focuses on ways to empower minors to make better decisions for their futures, develop a sense of confidence in themselves, and learn how to appropriately manage difficult feelings that can often arise during the transition from childhood into adulthood. I implement CBT and DBT skills to help manage urges and impulses. I also provide education on development of the brain and how children’s brain development can impact their emotions and behaviors. At times, I will also invite family members into the therapy sessions so that they may help the child to remember the skills learned in therapy when they are not in the session.
